Jaxon Leasure Death – A hit-and-run accident that occurred late Thursday night near Madison resulted in the death of a motorcycle, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department. According to the early findings of the investigation, Jaxon Leasure, 17, was riding south on Gallatin Pike on his Kawasaki Ninja in the centre turn lane at a high rate of speed when he collided with a dark-colored GMC SUV that was pulling out of 105 Gallatin Pike N. making a left turn.
The police report states that the collision occurred when the SUV was making a left turn. After the collision between the two vehicles, Leasure was thrown off the motorbike, and according to the police, he hit a sign. According to MNPD, Leasure was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Centre, but he did not survive his stay there.
“We heard the first bang, and then we looked over, and we saw the motorbike going across the road,” a witness named Rene Laizer said. “We thought he was passing, but in reality, whatever he hit sent him on his trajectory over there to that sign,” said one of the witnesses. Laizer dashed out of the petrol station where he was parked to check on Leasure, but he reported that the teen was unresponsive and not moving when he arrived. He reported that he received cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from the responding medical personnel before being transported to the hospital.
According to the police, it is suspected that the dark-colored SUV originally halted, but then drove away before the authorities arrived at the site. In order to ascertain whether or not impairment played a role in the collision, toxicology testing will be carried out. Metro Police have stated that they are actively pursuing leads in this investigation. Please contact Crime Stoppers at the number provided above if you have any information regarding the driver or vehicle that was involved in this unfortunate accident.
